Rastriya Samachar Samiti

Pokhara, March 12:

A two-day long western region educational exhibition got underway at Pokhara today with the objective of showcasing the talent of students and enhancing the standard of education through practical means.

There are 60 stalls from schools, institutions associated with education and other non-governmental educational organisations at the exhibition hosted jointly by the Department of Education and the Regional Education Directorate, Pokhara.

Speaker Taranath Ranabhat, inaugurating the exhibition, said that as the 21st century will be a century of science and technology, showcasing these kinds of skills and knowledge will motivate students who will be at the helm of affairs tomorrow.

Stating that it is because of the disruptive activities of the Maoists that the youth force in rural areas of the country is under compulsion to sweat in foreign lands or in training in jungles, speaker Ranabhat said violence and murder are not going to solve problems.

Raj Parishad member Ganesh Bahadur Gurung said that the educational exhibition would reveal the latent talent of students. Chairman of Kaski DDC Kamal Man Gurung and former minister of state Ravindra Khanal also expressed their views at the programme, chaired by the regional education director Purna Bahadur Ranabhat.

Speaker Ranabhat gave away commendation letters to various persons for their outstanding contributions to the field of education. About 4,000 items of educational material have been showcased in the exhibition which is expected to be visited by more than 50,000 people.
